Trustonic platform can now be used by developers to secure apps with both multiple hardware-backed TEEs and advanced software protection to enable the next generation of secure mobile user experiences.

HUAWEI P40 Series

09 June 2020 – Trustonic and Huawei today announce the next step in their partnership to bring simplicity and greater security to mobile applications. Trustonic Application Protection (TAP) now supports Huawei’s hardware-backed Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) “iTrustee”, and the HUAWEI P40 Series smartphone supports the TAP SDK at launch. Application developers can use the TAP development platform to leverage Huawei’s hardware-backed security for features such as Trusted User Interface (TUI), which is vital for the next generation of mobile banking, payments and mPOS, automotive and mobile identity-based apps.

The TAP platform makes it easy for application developers to build advanced security and shielding into critical mobile apps. This will help Huawei to create a secure ecosystem for its Huawei devices, starting with the  HUAWEI P40 Series, while adding support for the other devices that are upgraded to EMUI 10.1. iTrustee’s integration with TAP will simplify the process of secure application development for Huawei devices and their acceptance into the broader application ecosystem.

“The TAP development platform gives application developers access to the advanced security features that they need to bring trust and richer user experiences to app users across billions of smartphones worldwide,” adds Dion Price, Trustonic CEO. “This announcement is a significant achievement in just one year of working with Huawei and will bring hardware-backed security to an even wider range of applications and services.”

This news builds on the 2019 launch of the first development platform to enable developers to protect their apps and assets with TEE* across different devices.

About TAP: Strong in-app protection enabling richer user experiences

TAP is the only application development platform that combines hardware-backed and software based in-app protection, enabling any developer to build and deploy applications with advanced security, and make use of TUI to shield sensitive user-interactions from potentially-compromised main device operating systems. TAP is already protecting a wide range of sensitive mobile application use-cases globally. This includes the digital car key sharing apps for Volkswagen Group and Hyundai, and off-the-shelf smartphone secure payment acceptance with Rubean.

*The TEE is a hardware-based security enclave of the main processor in a smart phone (or any connected device) that ensures sensitive data is stored, processed and protected in an isolated, trusted environment. The TEE’s ability to offer isolated safe execution of authorised security software, known as ‘trusted applications’, enables it to provide end-to-end security by enforcing data protection, confidentiality, integrity and access rights and interfacing securely with end-users. The TEE offers a level of protection against mass scale attacks originated from the main Rich OS environment.
